Wolves are a natural mean of controlling the number of deer, elk, and other large game in an environment. The larger populations of herbivores are a problem for farmers and ranchers. The herd's winter grounds could be the same ranchers use for their cattle. In 1983 the case of Allen Nelson, a rancher in Montana, came to the attention of the Forest Service. Nelson owned land about twenty miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Buffalo Restoration Debate Restoration of the Bison is something that has been going on for the past two decades. As a matter of fact, several Native American tribes have come together to form the Inter Tribal Bison Cooperative (ITBC) which has been set out to bring bison back onto the American plains in the midwest. Bison have an intimate relationship in the traditions and rituals of Native Americans. The importance of bison within the culture has made bringing back the bison an important issue in the preservation of wildlife. However, some of the arguments made by the ITBC show that the bison's economic value should be the main factor why they should be brought back.
You will need to fully scout your chosen area, looking for water and food sources near signs of the presence (or activity) of deer. Deer signs can consist of droppings, trails, buck rubs and buck scrapes. Rubs early in the season (inactive rubs) mostly are from bucks shedding their velvet and are still good deer signs. Active rubs and scrapes will be found in late October and early November when bucks are on the move early in the pre-rut phase. Old rubs and scrapes from the previous year are good indicators.

Bison, like many species, have come a long way since the dawn of time. Bison have grown along side humans and humans took advantage of the bison to near extinction. Now bison have been struggling to survive but are luckily still around today but not in every place it used to be. The history of bison go far back to when species are still young on land. To start back in the beginning, bison came from the bovine family.

Wildlife population and health is at a prime due to hunting. When Europeans first arrived on American soil, they learned to hunt from the Native Americans. They fed their families with venison, and clothed them with the hide from the deer. There was no bag limit for deer so they eventually killed off most deer. After that they restored the white-tailed deer population and the deer were overpopulated.
